monolithic voting group. vicky, i want to turn to you, the florida numbers are particularly fascinating approximate this. we were looking at a recent poll from the miami herald that looks at sort of obama and romney support. when you include cuban americans in the counting, president obama is leading by a slight margin, 51%. if, however, you look at it with cuban americans excluded from it, then all of a sudden president obama it leading at about 65%. obviousli obviously, that's an krags indication that you end up with national origin and other issues. >> i think florida is a microcosm for that diversity. in south florida, the miami area, you have a cuban american vote that's very republican. regardless of the generation. then you go into the i-4 corridor and you see the explosion of the puerto rican vote. interestingly enough, you have democrats but also a growing number of independents. then if you go even further, you have a smattering of mexican americans. what is the trend for the future there. it's not mexican americans in texas. it's going to be puerto ricans and cuban americans.

, voter intimidation, barriers to the electoral process are alive and well. we saw it in florida, ohio, pennsylvania. if ever there were a need to justify why having interventions like the voting rights act and other laws are in place, we have that. i think there is now clearly an emerging consensus. how extensive it is, we don't know. i think both republicans and democrats saw those eight hour lines and said you can't have this in kabul and baghdad and now you have it in the united states. we have to address that. >> let me ask this. much of it was not happening in the south. it was happening in plea clearance states. is that exactly the reason to do away with preclearance and say, well, you know, if it's happening in ohio and pennsylvania? >> no. i think that this president absolutely has to use the bully pulpit to an extent. he's a former con law professor to explain to the country why this is so vital and important. when they hear things about supreme court cases, illegal things, they check out. >> they glaze over. >> something that affects everyone. it affects women, it disproport
in 2008, this is one of the biggest democratic wins since fdr. with florida now colored blue, the president had secured a wide electoral surplus and a sizable popular vote margin. now, the popular vote win was made possible by people who lined up in huge numbers to vote in states like louisiana or new york or south carolina, which weren't in play in terms of their electoral votes. they weren't going to be needed. but who were nonetheless determined to cast their ballots for the president. as a result, this president's win was bigger than jfk's in 1960, bigger than richard nixon in 1968, bigger than jimmy carter's in 1976 and bigger than george w. bush's in 2000. no denying it. it was a big win. and as i said before, size does matter. at least when it comes to laying claim to a mandate. so the president may have earned political capital, but what is he going to say about the argument for why he's earned it. why did the electorate overwhelmingly vote to put this president back in the white house? does tuesday's win tell us a story sufficient to explain what america wants? now,
speech. there was folks in florida still online at 1:30 in the morning when he was giving his victory speech to vote. so all this nonsense about how young people, people of color, you know voted for the president because he was giving them gifts, this is the moment we've waited for. to have a president who represents us, who speaks to us and who fight for us. >> it's an interesting point here because you know, one of the things that allows the president to have not only an electoral college victory but a popular vote victory is that folks in plays like new york and louisiana and so-called safe red and blue states nonetheless showed up to vote for the president even though at the presidential level their vote didn't count in the same way. yet, it makes a big difference if he wins with a popular mandate and an electoral college win. >> you're absolutely right in your opening remarks, people are not going to be denied the right to vote. people are not going to be denied -- when you start talking about voter suppression and all going on, people said we're going to show we're going to stan
